John McCain appears to be gaining bipartisan support, but success is far from assured.

The statement, drafted before the senator's death Saturday, would have commended the Arizona Republican for his military service and his decades in the Senate.

"You know what is making Donald Trump the craziest right now is he's not the center of attention".

The controversial Senator McCain, a Vietnam War veteran and former prisoner of war, would be provided a military escort as he embarks on his final journey from Arizona to Washington and will be granted full military honors during a subsequent service at the United States Naval Academy.

A discussion the CNN host Chris Cuomo moderated between Bakari Sellers, a former Democratic state representative in SC, and former Sen. And Mr. Trump passed on multiple opportunities to rectify the situation, until the head of the American Legion implored him to appropriately honor McCain.

The Vietnam News Agency said Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan sent messages of condolence to McCain's family and U.S. Senate leaders, while Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh paid respects to McCain at the embassy.

The flags were returned to full-staff on Monday morning.

On Monday, she also defended her comments from a year ago that McCain should have stepped down when he was diagnosed with brain cancer.

President Obama ordered flags at the White House be flown at half-staff for almost five days after Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy of MA died in 2009.

In the statement, McCain reflected on the privilege of serving his country and said he tried to do so honorably.

Mr Trump has now repeated this honour for Mr McCain, saying this recognised the "longstanding service" he had given.

Sen. Lindsey Graham took to the Senate floor Tuesday to give an emotional farewell to his friend and colleague, Sen.

Sellers went on to attack the Republican Party as a whole, calling it "one of cowardice" and accusing Republicans like Santorum of trying to "contort themselves into pretzels" to defend Trump. This, according to Parker, underscores Trump's frequent position as a "pariah" who isn't allowed to, or isn't willing to show proper respect to recently deceased political figures or perform other "basic rituals and ceremonies of the presidency".

McCain "meant so much to so many of us", inside the Senate and out, McConnell said, adding: "The Senate is eager to work on concrete ways to continue this momentum and provide a lasting tribute to this American hero long after this week's observances are complete". He "doesn't think America is exceptional, that America is a deeply flawed country", Santorum said.

"You're so petty", Sellers said, shaking his head.

The CNN host Chris Cuomo jumped in: "Come on, don't play cheap", he said. You can't do better than that?

"You know Richard Russell was ... from the South, and I'm sure not ideal like George Washington and everybody else in his days, but he was a well-respected senator", said Republican Sen.

While the president's statement sought to defuse the controversy, the upcoming weeklong celebration of McCain's life is likely to bring new awkwardness.

"I will just say this", he said.
